Replacement ref twice got replay rule wrong

(Continued)

MINNEAPOLIS —

“By rule there is no foul on the play,” Roan announced to the crowd. “First down, Minnesota.”

The NFL has warned teams and front offices that there will be consequences for criticizing the replacement officials, and Greenway said the key was not to allow any mistakes that are made to take their heads out of the game.

“It was really weird how things were going,” Greenway said. “We didn’t even know what was going on. We thought it was a penalty because they had no timeouts. It was kind of a weird deal, but anyways, we got the win.”
